T-Mobile has submitted plans to build a new telecommunications tower at a Dominion Power substation site.
The company hopes to build a monopole between 120 and 125 feet tall enclosed by a 15 feet by 100 foot long ground equipment facility.
In a report, town staff indicated that the facility is “minimally visible” from Grove Street and the Washington & Old Dominion Trail.
Existing landscaping will be removed to make way for the project. New landscaping is planned on the edge of the site to screen the new facility at the ground level.
Prior to approval, town staff recommended a number of design conditions, including matching paint on the antennas and all attached equipment, as well.
The project heads to the Town of Herndon’s Architectural Review Board on Wednesday, Oct. 7. The virtual meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m.
